Zoom on the Kärcher G3500QHT

In summary, the Kärcher G3500QHT is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Kärcher G3500QHT in use

The Kärcher G3500QHT

Using a 196 cc engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 3500 PSI (roughly 58 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 9100 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GX200 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3500QHT is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20.7 x W22.5 x H39.4 in. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the G3500QHT convenience of transport.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 70.6 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. But, as the G3500QHT does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Kärcher G3500QHT

Along with the Kärcher G3500QHT itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The included 35 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
